    Does anyone know at what gearing the carrier changed in the 12bolt axle?

    And also, anyone know if a 12bolt with full locker can handle 35" tires?

    Thanks.

    Very cool, but what about the second question. Anyone?

  4. It should. What will effect that more is the amount of torque the engine develops along with the transmission/tranfer case/rear end gearing.

    I would think so. I am running a full Detroit in my 10-bolt with 4.56s gears. No problems, yet. Of course, ease on the righ foot is the best way to extend the life of diff parts.
